An internationally renowned charity event, SEA Paddle NYC serves as the Surfers’ Environmental Alliance’s primary fundraiser. Through paddler fundraising, corporate sponsorship and ancillary events, it has raised over $1.8 million for environmental preservation and numerous autism non-profits. The event was recently honored as the “2013 SUP Awards Top Philanthropic Effort” by SUP magazine.
SEA Paddle NYC is a WPA sanctioned specialty event, and has attracted surfers, standup paddlers and watermen from all corners of the globe, including icons like Gerry Lopez, Jaime Mitchell, Annabel Anderson, Rob Rojas, Darrick Doerner, Tom Curren & Joel Tudor. Paddlers come for the one-of-a-kind physical challenge, the beauty of Manhattan and the camaraderie in paddling for a cause.
